Language and the Mind
This collection addresses the central questions of how language knowledge is acquired, processed in real time, and represented in the brain. The answers draw from a range of disciplines, including mainstream linguistic theory, experimental psycholinguistics, computational modeling and statistical methods. Together these papers offer a multi-faceted perspective on language and cognition, on contemporary research methods, and on the foundational questions and controversies that animate the field.
In the Spotlight
Konrad Körding is Assistant Professor of Physiology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, part of Northwestern University. Before joining Northwestern in 2006, Professor Körding worked in three different research groups, most recently in 2004-2005 at MIT, studying machine learning and hierarchical Bayesian models.
Professor Körding is a member of the Swiss Society for Neuroscience, the German Society for Neuroscience, the Society for Neuroscience (USA) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Professor Körding’s current research with the Bayesian Behavior group aims to improve rehabilitation procedures through a greater understanding of motor learning. In order to do this the team studies how people move, and how these movements are affected by uncertainty.Learn More
